    Lovely Building and Room at the Right Price

    I have to declare an interest as I know the owner. That said I am being as honest as possible. The Guesthouse is slightly out of the centre but is still only 400 yards from the night market and a short walk to the riverside. On a map look for the local Governors office and the GH is just opposite.

    Should you be a light sleeper I suggest you get a room at the back as there is some road noise. There are good restaurants and cafes nearby and the little pho shop two doors down stays open late and sells cold beer.

    The GH itself is well built and nicely finished the rooms are spacious and well furnished. Bathrooms are a good size with quality fittings and excellent showers with plenty of hot water and a good pressure. he airconditioning is effective and modern so fairly quiet. Flat screen TV on the wall has more than 40 channels inc BBC world and CNN. I like the fact that they have bedside lights so that you do not have to get up to turn the lights out!

    Breakfast iserved in the lobby nd is the usual Lao fare. Fried Eggs or Omlette Bread or Croissant butter and Jam. Plate of fruit and tea or coffee. The staff are helpful and attentive although some do not have much English.

    ... home of the Emerald Buddha which was now placed and we had seen whilst in Thailand. We opted out of the tour as we had read about a place called Buddha Park but it was 25 km out of the city and would take around an hour to get there. We knew there wouldn't be time in the morning (we had a plane to catch so couldn't be held up) so it was now or never. Another member of our group joined us and then it was just about haggling for a Tuk Tuk with our ...

    ... fitting the bill after our previous few days - Sengdara Fitness Centre. We spent a day there, carrying out a solid 2 hour workout with a mix of cardio and weights, followed by a swim and a sauna for a real good sweat out. For only £5 each for a full day - it was exactly what the doctor ordered. Our second day and subsequently final full day in Laos turned into an action packed Kelsey v Oli sports day. It was a great laugh. Starting with 4 games of Snooker (yes Snooker), Oli took a ...

    ... single speed bikes that seem to be all that’s on offer in this part of the world – still at 10000 kip (about 75p) each for the day we can’t complain too much! Then we cycle a bit further afield. First stop is the presidential palace. It’s not open but we get to see the imposing building from the outside. Over the road we visit Wat Sisaket, a very old-looking (but only late nineteenth century) temple with some impressive ...

    We had an early dinner at the same French restaurant we went to the other night before heading back to the hotel for a desperately-needed shower and lie down.

    ... for raising my airport esthetic expectations with their 10-year-old Luang Prabang airport, and Siem Reap's 2013 airport which was so swank that it still had the new-car smell.


    We spent today exploring Vientiane (note: five bucks says you can't pronounce that name correctly. Ready? "Ween-chan." This is what happens when the French take over a Chinese-named city and attempt to spell it phonetically). We took a public bus about an hour south ...
